“I don't care what problem you face; it has no power to defeat the cross of Christ.”
Jay E. Adams, How to Overcome Evil

“Evil is powerful, but good is more powerful. In fact, evil is so powerful that only good has the power to overcome evil. Darkness can be driven away only by light.”
Jay E. Adams, How to Overcome Evil

“The Christian is free from all other human beings. He does not have to live over against others, controlled by their actions and responses. Rather, he lives according to Christ's commands. This is Christian freedom. It is a freedom unknown by others. It is not just when others do the things that we like that we act properly toward them; we are free to do good even when they don't because our actions are not dependent on their responses. It is the Lord Christ when we serve!”
Jay E. Adams, How to Overcome Evil
